Phillies Vs. Giants, NLCS Game 3: Brian Wilson Seals The Deal With Save

Brian Wilson has a reputation of always making things more interesting than they have to be, but a three-run lead? A three-run lead's pretty cozy.

Wilson was called on to protect a 3-0 game in the ninth inning, and he got the job done with little trouble. He started things off by racking up a swinging strikeout of Jayson Werth. Jimmy Rollins followed by lining a long single off the wall in right, but Raul Ibanez followed with a grounder to second that made for a textbook 4-6-3 double play.

With the win, the Giants go up two games to one in the series, with Game 4 scheduled for Wednesday evening. Expect Charlie Manuel to keep on getting more and more questions about who he's going to start.
